    Makes me sad that I'll never see this happen.

    I'd rather see Sauron riding a sled pulled by Rhosgobel rabbits into battle.

    Reading about the development of LOTR and it's a VERY good thing that Bob Weinstein's proposed 2 hour single film version did not go through, because it wouldn't have done justice to the book AT ALL and we wouldn't even have the Hobbit films today.

    I think 2 movies would have been fine to get all the necessary story and also have time to put in some LOTR links.

    This third movie sounds increasingly bizarre

    If it is true that Thorin doesn't die that would be frustrating. His demise is somewhat tragic but also in some ways just given he may have become as corrupted by the gold as those before him (the whole story is really about the follies of Greed). Plus since we know Bilbo survives to LOTR if another major character doesn't die doesn't it take emotional weight out of the movie?

    But! Now he can be CG'ed into FOTR.

    ...so...it all balances out?
    We'd have a bad LotR film, as opposed to three good ones with astonishingly terrible bits, (bad)
    But we'd not have the three (mostly astonishingly terrible bits) hobbit films, (good).


    I've given up hope of sanity in these films already, but this is just plain ridiculous.

    Entirely off topic, but for some reason, when I saw your avatar, I thought it was a pumpkin-carving of the image...

    It's probably all speculation.

    ...What? This was even a rumor? WTF is this crap? The whole point of the novel is lost if that happens.

    I suspected they might pull a stupid stunt like this when Kili and Fili got stuck in Lake Town.

    Thorin's gold madness is what got those poor buggers killed in the end. But there's no way they're going to get holed up in the mountain with him to have that blaze-of-glory scene if they're starting a revolution or whatever it is they're doing in LT.

    I'm holding out hope for Thorin's battle reveal and death scene. Please, PJ, don't screw it up.

    Another image for BOFA, look at Gandalf's staff, the same as the one in Fellowship.
